  1. Send Tandy an email or even call them ..i am sure one of the stores or even the warehouse has a spare one
  2. I had those ring custom made locally in a machine shop. Most of the dogs i made collars were over 100lb and the ring held just fine . That being said , they are not meant to be used as an agitation collar , bite work and so on .
  3. I made collars in the past using these lions I bought from the hardware store...they are drawer pulls...some better quality then others . I am not a big fan of them as they are "kitschy" in my opinion ..but who am I to argue with the customer. The round spots are just upholstery tacks from Tandy Here are some of them
  4. The lions can be found at any larger hardware stores...just do a search for "lion heads pulls"...most of them are screw-back
  5. Sorry , I was a bit vague. Call your local Tandy store. I assume since the Montreal location is closed , Markham or Mississauga location is who you want to call for any alcohol based dies , finishes or contact cements.
  6. Call your local store for Fiebing's dies (pro or regular) and order them over the phone . I am also sure they might be able to answer some of your questions too
  7. I've been making dog collars for a long time...this is an interesting design that I've never seen before
  8. When you say padding , is that some kind of foam inside your soft leather ? I am only using 3-4 oz soft leather for my "padding" nothing stuffed inside ...it is more for aesthetics . If needed , the softer rolled edges are more than enough protection in my opinion
  9. I think the padding is way to thick. With or without the top strap attached , a padding that thick will wrinkle regardless , when bent into a circle . If I am making a collar using two ply , I am always gluing them together around a form. My padding is not nearly as thick of yours and I still get a bit of wrinkles . I am using different size PVC pipes as forms ... helps me with collar sizing too .
  10. Did you called your local Tandy? The website shows "out of stock" but some stores might actually have it
  11. My dog collar cost me well over $10000 so far ... welcome to the club. You do nice work !
  12. Make round holes around curves...you are not gonna have that problem anymore..especially in small radius curves. Also start making your holes from the center of the curve and work your way up on both sides..this way your last stitches , left and right side, will be equally distant from your key ring
  13. I drove all the way to Toledo from Toronto Canada...never regretted it...Bob was great Dealt with Cobra and their customer service is impeccable ...they went the extra mile to help me when they didn;t have to Either way , you can't go wrong
